Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with math, part of Learning C (2014).
The important thing to remember when it comes…to math and programming is that the computer…does the work.…You just have to copy the equation down properly.…To do so, you need to know a few math operators…plus some other C Language rules and procedures.…In this movie, I review the basic math operators…and how they're used.…Also explored are the increment and decrement operators,…plus, a few notes on the order of precedence,…which determines which part of an equation…is evaluated first.…
The C language uses four basic symbols…for the four basic math operators.…Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.…These should be familiar to you, especially…if you've used a spreadsheet.…The asterisk is used for multiplication,…that's because the multiplication symbol…isn't available on the keyboard,…and please don't use the letter "x".…Similarly, the division symbol isn't found on the standard…computer keyboard so a slash is used instead.…
Two additional operators are increment…and decrement, these are single operators despite…
